We are heavily working on bringing ROT3 to life. As you all know, the Cormyrean Expanse (Low Magic Campaign) has been removed from ROT. We have adjusted the story a little bit at the end of ROT2 Chapter 11, and you will see how well it fits our plans to roll into ROT 3.
ROT 3's title is "Volume 3 - The Cormyrean Expanse" and will have 20 chapters in all and be broken up into 2 volumes.
ROT 3 will be basically the CEXP campaign, but adjusted for High Level and High Magic. We are making some changes here and there as necessary, but that is the basic idea of how we are proceeding. Below is the list of tasks at hand and statuses:
- Decommission CEXP characters and credit accounts. - Done
- Remove CEXP stores and branches from server. - Done
- Removing CEXP spell reversions. - Done
- Creation of a whole new script system for dynamic mob properties and customizations. - Done
